LETTER: Military trip to the Cairo area

Over the years I have arranged for many groups to travel back to the Egyptian Canal Zone and several of your readers have joined us on these visits.

I have now stopped organising groups to the Canal Zone but I have received many letters enquiring if it is possible to visit the war cemeteries in the Cairo area, especially Heliopolis and El-Alamein as well as Moascar – Fayid – Tel El-Kebir . There are at least five war cemeteries in the Cairo vicinity as well as the ones mentioned above and so I have decided to arrange a group visit to Cairo.

I would also be willing to take photos on behalf of your readers of graves of their friends and loved ones (complimentary to your readers ). I will send full details of itinerary and costs etc.

The reunion group visit is June 1-10, 2016. My contact details are Alf Avison, Middle East Land Forces Association, PO Box 99, Spalding, Lincolnshire PE11 9NS. Email alfavison@talktalk.net; telephone 07814 - 832441.
